Anthology Workshop

Write Six Stories, Then Possibly Sell Them…

I am sort of surprised, in an odd way, that for the first time in years, the anthology workshop is not full at this point. We have five spots left open and the sign-ups end on November 24th because the writing starts on the 25th.

Of course, almost all the northwest people are no longer coming. For years they had it easy. But for everyone else, Vegas is cheaper to get to than the coast and a ton easier in March. Let me change that metaphor. Light years easier.

This might be the best workshop we do. But also the most frightening because you have to write short stories under a week deadline to a specific topic, then in March listen to five editors talk about your stories and all the other stories and decide to buy or not.

And wow, the networking with other writers is amazing and fantastic fun.

So anyhow, five spots open.

I have started the group list. And will be sending out hotel information and first story information over that list shortly. So if you were planning on attending the workshop in March, which we start writing for in two weeks, and didn’t get an invite to the group, contact me now.

Three weeks of writing three stories at the end of November and early December, then time off for the holidays, then three more weeks of writing in January. Then a lot of reading.

And you will be writing for real paying markets and experienced editors.

The cost is $750. Write me for information if interested. Dates are March 1st through the morning of the 6th.

On Another Note…

We just finished the 2018 Master Business Class and we had a blast. We also discovered the costs of putting on the conference here in Las Vegas seem higher than we expected. We will know more for certain by the end of the year, but for now we are offering an early-bird rate of $750 to get into the 2019 Master Business Class. That might not last long as we discover the real costs. (grin)

The dates for the 2019 Master Business Class are October 25th to October 30th. This workshop will fill like it normally does. We will be announcing new instructors through the spring and should end up with around ten to twelve again.

Also at that web site there is information about the 2019 craft workshops. A few still have openings in a few of them. If interested, write me.

And if you like the sound of a craft workshop, but can’t make it to Las Vegas, or don’t qualify yet, we have a series of Study Along workshops on Teachable.
